Nokia 8 shown off this early before official unveiling

According to VentureBeat, Nokia may be gearing up for a July 31 announcement for the Nokia 8 which will be priced at €550 (€589 including taxes) which makes the phone approximately $633 or Rs. 41000.

Nokia launched three new Android smartphones this year, the Nokia 3, the Nokia 5, and the Nokia 6. If you are not aware, HMD Global is a Finnish start-up company, which has the official permit to manufacture, distribute and sell Nokia-branded smartphones worldwide. It seems that HMD is sticking with physical keys and larger display bezels for its Nokia-branded flagship device. The premium and high-end Nokia flagship likely dubbed Nokia 9 is said to compete with all the other existing flagships from Apple, Samsung, Google, etc. The smartphone is also expected to have at least a 5.3-inch WQHD display, with rumors claiming that the Nokia 8 display will measure 5.7 inches. The phone features a physical home button with fingerprint scanner on top. This device is called the Nokia 8, and it has already been leaked in its full glory.

Aside from the processor, the leak also mentioned that the Nokia 8 will sport 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal flash storage. Theory 1: Dual cameras for everyone Some time ago, our colleagues over at Nokia Power User revealed a couple of design sketches, allegedly of the Nokia 8 and Nokia 9.

Meanwhile, we do not know anything about the other specification which the Nokia 8 may feature.

The smartphone may come packed with Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. It is expected to be come in colors like blue, gold/blue, gold copper and steel/silver. The latest we heard is that device will have a dual camera made by Carl Zeiss. In Europe, the smartphone is rumored to come in dual SIM variant and that the company will also offer variations of RAM and internal memory. While, a new report coming from a German website - WinFuture suggests that Nokia 8 may launch on July 31. We'll have to wait for the launch of the phone initially.
